We hear all the time that reading is good for the brain. A study by Emory University demonstrated that reading fiction helps our ability to ” in another person’s shoes and flex the imagination in a way that is similar to the visualization of a muscle memory in sports”.
But reading’s also good for marriages. Opening a book can let you share stories you enjoyed as a kid or see situations from another person’s point of view.
No matter what you read, engaging with your spouse in a non-typical way allows you to discover new things about each other, laugh together, and rebuild the excitement in your relationship.
Don’t have a good book handy?
Add stop at library on your “to-do” list.
